Out in the Bay

Thursdays 7pm
produced and hosted by Eric Jansen & Marilyn Pittman

Out in the Bay - Gay Radio from San Francisco    

Queer histories, herstories, personalities and issues are explored with humor, insight, and sensitivity each week on Out in the Bay.  We've been called “the gay Fresh Air” and even "the gay Tavis Smiley." We’ve interviewed such celebrities as film directors Ang Lee and John Waters, comedians Margaret Cho and Marga Gomez, singers Leslie Gore and Michael Feinstein,  actors, authors and more.  We’ve also featured historians, scholars, and activists -- including Phyllis Lyon and the late Del Martin -- with compelling stories about the reality of LGBT life.

Powerful Memoir: "Riding Fury Home"

Chana Wilson and her mother, Gloria

Chana

Wilson grew up in the 1950s with a suicidal mother. She learned in adulthood that her mother had been a closeted lesbian given psychiatric treatments - including electroshock - to “cure” her. Mother and daughter developed a deep bond when both came out as lesbians in the women’s and gay liberation movements of the late 1960s and ’70s. There's much more to this touching, fascinating story in "Riding Fury Home," Chana’s memoir. Marilyn Pittman hosts.  Thursday, September 25, 2014
